This IPA has a bronze/copper color with a slight haze and a white dense head. Looks inviting in the glass and has medium carbonation.

The aroma reveals the heavy hoppiness of the beer and seems a bit sour.

It has a good malt body feel but the hops gives it a not so pleasent dry impact.

The taste itself are of heavy fruity hop character and a tremendous bitterness. This feature I think best balanced with some finger food. The full malt taste ads to the complexity of the beer and makes it more interesting.

Overall a beer with a lot of taste, but not so tasty.

The colour is amber (23 EBC), the liquid is hazy. The low off-white head sinks quickly into a thin ring. No lacing.

The smell is raw and hoppy with some citric flavours (grape fruit), dried exotic fruits. Some tart chemical flavours. Rye bread and dough. Rubber and plastic in the background. Hints of alcohol.

The taste is bitter. Some exotic fruits (lychee, orange, pineapple) and citric notes of grapefruit. The sweet flavours fades quickly., giving room for tart notes of lime. Quite a lot of alcohol, with slight hints of solvents. Medium body. The aftertaste got notes of dark bread, bitter hops, green bananas and sour candy. The long finish is bitter.

The carbonation is strong with lots of medium sized short-lived sharp bubbles. The liquid is semi-smooth and a bit dry.

A rye that focus on the bitter hops only. More lika a DIPA.

Bottle: Poured an amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light spicy rye notes with some nice citrus hoppy notes. Taste is also dominated by citrus hoppy notes with well-balanced bitterness and some light spicy and peppery notes from the rye malt. Body is full enough for style with good carbonation. Very enjoyable beer that I wouldn’t mind drinking on a regular basis.

33cl bottle. Pours a dark amber, with a tan head that gives way to a sticky lacing. Smells of caramel and dark fruit. Tastes sweet and malty, with a thin hop-bitter component underneath.
